What if we believed we are who God says we are…forgiven. I mean really believed it. Not just said we believed it, because that is what Christians are expected to say. Because if we really believed we are forgiven for our past sins we would stop the mental beat-down we give ourselves every time we look in the mirror.
Our debt has been paid through the blood of Jesus Christ. If we asked for forgiveness and repented, then He has forgiven us…”made us pure as snow.” (Isaiah 1:18)
Seriously, He has wiped the slate clean. End of conversation. (1 John 1:8-10)
What if we really believed we are forgiven…what could we do? Where would we go? Could we be who we were meant to be? Would we be who God knows we are?
